Sigur Ros recently started selling custom-made scented candles through their online store.
Named after a track on 2012's 'Valtari' album, the Varðeldur candle has the aroma of "driftwood campfire". Priced at $23.50 (£14.99), the candle is described as follows:
"The smoky, slightly briny smell of a flotsam campfire on a distant black beach under a wan midnight sun. And, most recently, the smell of Sigur Rós's studio, while they go about the quasi-mystical business of making the magic happen. Specially developed to the band's olfactory specifications, this candle burns for 35 evocative hours of "instant Iceland", or something like that."
Sigur Ros play:
Dublin O2 Arena (November 16)
Nottingham Arena (19)
Brighton Centre (20)
London Wembley Arena (21)
